On Saturday mornings, meet your friends for brunch at friendly Caravane Café. Keep it healthy with a fruit juice smoothie, or treat yourself to one of the café’s decadent white chocolate brownies. Spend the afternoon marvelling over the ethereal architecture of Canada’s largest church, L'Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont-Royal, or exploring the high street fashion stores of Plaza Côte-des-Neiges mall. Change into your new outfit at your student housing at Maison pres d'HEC, before sampling the area’s multicultural culinary scene. Try Pho Lien for a taste of Vietnam, or Cuisine AuntDai for authentic Chinese.
At Maison pres d'HEC, experience the camaraderie of sharing your home with seven housemates. Walk to classes at HEC Montréal in 10 minutes, or to Polytechnique de Montréal and the Université de Montréal in 20. When you want to explore on weekends, take a 10 minute stroll to the nearest subway and find yourself in the heart of downtown Montréal in less than half an hour. Discover world-famous artworks at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, or get tickets to a Montreal Canadiens ice hockey game at Le Centre Bell.
In between adventures, come home to your furnished apartment. Grab a snack from the fridge and heat it up in the microwave, then sit down around the dining table to catch up with your housemates or watch your favourite series on the flatscreen TV. Later, retire to your private bedroom for a nap, or to work on your latest assignment. Spread your books out at your bedroom desk, and use the free Wi-Fi to research your sources. At Maison pres d'HEC, your heating, electricity and water are also included in your rent.
When you’re done, wander out to the garden for a breath of fresh air. If you’re keen on more strenuous exercise, make the most of the athletics track, soccer pitches and tennis courts at nearby Park Kent. Sink into a hot bath when you get home, then throw your clothes in the washer dryer and head to the kitchen for dinner. Escape washing up duties by loading the dishwasher, before heading out to popular student bar Resto-Bar La Maisonnée for karaoke night.
